Recipe Ingredients for Chicken Cacciatore with Spaghetti Squash Noodles

2 cups Spaghetti Squash, halved lengthwise
14 oz Chicken
1 El Pato Tomato Sauce
1/2 (74 g) large, Yellow Bell Pepper (or red or orange), sliced
1 whole Tomato, sliced
1/4 medium Red Onion, sliced
1 tbl fresh Garlic, pressed
1/8 tsp Crushed Red Pepper
1 tbl Italian Seasoning
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Spices Ground Black Pepper

Recipe Directions for Chicken Cacciatore with Spaghetti Squash Noodles

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Season squash with salt and pepper and lay face down on a PAMmed cookie sheet. Bake in oven for 45 min, or until squash is fork tender and releases easily from the shell.

  2. In the meantime, place chicken pieces, salt, cracked pepper, crushed red pepper, italian seasoning and garlic in a PAMmed pan over med-high heat. Saute until chicken is cooked on the outside, but slightly underdone on the inside - 8-10 min. Add bell pepper, tomato and red onion and saute for 3-5 min, until onions are translucent. Add in your tomato sauce and simmer for 15 min on low, stirring occasionally. Sauce will thicken quite a bit. You can let this simmer for longer while you wait on your squash, but don't let your chicken get rubbery.

  3. Pull squash out of the oven and using a fork, gently scrape the side of the squash from rind to center, creating "spaghetti noodles".

  4. To plate:

  5. Place 1 cup of the spaghetti squash in the center of your plate and scoop 1 1/2 cups chicken and sauce over the top. ENJOY!

  6. PS - Save your leftover spaghetti squash for other "green" options! We love it in omelets, with salads, sauteed veggies, etc.
